First Birthday!!

Hi, am back again and so soon you may ask!!! Am on a role.........  This is a first birthday card that I was requested to make for a friend for her niece who not only turned one, was also christened on the same day so yes I had two card make!  

The image used was the beautiful Kai is one girl by Mo Manning (Here), this was coloured using copics (sorry did not note the colours down)

Also, decorated and added words to the inside of the card!
Close up of the image.
Was very pleased to hear that they loved the card and everyone admired it.
Will be entering this into DP2 Challenge - #158 Cute & Cuddly

Thought I would also share with you the Christening Card: 

Was made using the spellbinders Basic Lattice and Crosses Two along with Fancy Tags two for the wording.

Thank you for stopping by.
Kind Regards

Think Pink! - Breast Cancer Awareness

Surprise, surprise I am back - twice in one week I know it's a rare occurrence but this time it's for a very good cause!!  The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness and having friends that have been or are going through this wanted to join and do my bit, so today I went to a Fundraiser hosted by a lovely friend. 

Firstly, I thought I would have to buy myself a 'pink' t-shirt and me being me had to change it in some way, so I found out the image kindly donated from the wonderful Krista from Saturated Canary (Called Boobie Love - Here) printed onto T-Shirt transfer added to my top and coloured with Copics (because my t-shirt is bright pink it did not colour too well but it was fine), a couple of people said they wanted one!!!

Sorry, not a very clear photo!
Close up of the image!


I had already offered to bake cupcakes for the day, but then thought (having seen it on the internet) to make some cupcakes into a bouquet which could be auctioned off to raise a few more dollars, every bit helps, here they are: 
Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla buttercream Icing!
The Pink ribbons I made from white icing dyed pink!!     



There is more...... I then saw a post on the Copic Oz blog where they would donate $5 to the McGrath Foundation for every entry into this challenge, so here is my entry:
They are bookmarks or a little gift for someone again made using the beautiful Boobie Love image from Saturated Canary, the papers are Carta Bella - Paris Girl range, along with a Martha Stewart Border & butterfly punch then adding ribbon and pink bling!!

Copics used: E000,00,21,11,93,50,51,53,57, W0,1,3,5,7 YG93, RG6,10
Close up of one!

Reverse of Tag!
 I printed the words onto the pink paper then cut out using spellbinder Labels 17, then stuck on the reverse,  decorated using liquid pearls.
These could be purchased and again all donations went to the fundraiser!!

Thank you for stopping by, wishing you all a wonderful week.
Take care

Dinosaur Birthday Lolly Bags....

Hello everyone, well last week was my little boys 2nd Birthday where has the time gone!!! To celebrate we had a morning tea with his little friends at home (whilst the bigger kids were at kinder) so this worked out very well.  I went with a kind of Dinosaur theme and made lolly bags from red envelopes which were from Envelope Solutions, then stamped the image onto punched out tags then coloured.  I altered the image with my 0.3 multiliner by adding the little sign and wrote each name on the tag!!!!  I would like to enter this project into the Mad for Markers October Challenge - Using Copic Multiliners somewhere/somehow!!

Here is a close up of the tag with the added sign and name!!
Copics used: YG91, 93, 95, 99, B93, R27, C5 and Black 0.3 Multiliner

The cake which I was talked into making by my auntie was a train and thankfully she did as I was very pleased, here is a picture of our little man about to blow out the candle!!  I also made dinosaur shortbread and dinosaur cake pops!!
 All in all it was a great week. This week has not been quite as fun as myself and Charlie came down with a sickness bug Monday evening but thankfully it only lasted 24 hours - so all better now.  Just need to get myself back into crafting as I have two cards to get completed before the weekend and a Christmas card order along with a few other things.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.
